On Thursday afternoon (Jan. 30), Pettis County Collector Marsha Boeschen announced she would run for another term as Pettis County Collector.

A large crowd of friends and supporters gathered on the second floor of the Pettis County Courthouse outside of the County Collector’s Office to hear Boeschen speak about her first term in office and the innovations she has implemented since she was took office in 2010.

Boeschen, who will run on the Republican ticket, was not sure if she would face an opponent in the Aug. 5 Primary, since the filing deadline is March 25. At the present time, Boeschen is the only candidate of either party to file for the office.
